next mod on my v6

I have a 2002 mustang V6. I have only put one mod on it and that is the K&N air intake. I hear alot of people saying exaust is the next best upgrade that is affordable to me at this time. I want something that will give me the best hp gains. If you could give me any suggestions that would be great.

Underdriver pulleys will get you more hp than exhaust.


Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion.

around 12-15hp.

If you've got that much, do a cam swap, and dual exhaust . . .

Any exhaust will get you the same numbers, but stick with 2.25" pipes, and stay away from aluminized pipes, always get stainless steel.

The cam is the "brain" of the engine. It controls the opening and closing of the valves.

depends on the cam and and the other mods you've done to intake and exhaust. 15-25 would be reasonable, but it really depends on the way it's spec'ced and how well the engine breathes. For a street engine, go for a street cam, and you have good gains from low rpm, but you won't reach the same high end output.

If you go for high end output with a race cam, and you lose low rpm hp & tq.

I've had the car for almost 3 years, and I've got 113,000 miles on it.

For this car, all my mods increase the efficiency. All I'm doing is prep work for when the engine dies (so I'm doing chassis work, bracing, etc). I'm picking up pieces for the next engine (upper and lower intake, looking for heads next), but I'm not going to install them until the car's paid off, and I get another car.

When the engine dies are you going to put in a six or an eight?
